    I used to hate ties, so I liked when they brought sudden death into the regular season, but I'd rather see them continue until a goal is scored and NOT do shootouts. Hey, the game is taking too long, so let's settle it with a skills competition instead of hockey.

    I'd be perfectly happy with 3 on 3 OT until someone scores. But again, not in the playoffs. I don't think that will ever change and it shouldn't.

    Absolutely agreed with the second part, and I also agree with the first, although I have no problem with ties.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    Yeah I thought Toronto was in the Great White North Division, not South FLA

    Somebody has to teach the people in Florida how to drive in the snow. Just look what happened in Texas.

    Because of division-only play. Whole league standings mean very little.

    Hey, we all know that if the Leafs had to play Tampa and Boston, as they would normally, they'd be battling for a playoff spot. I'd rate them equal to Carolina at this point.

    Caps beat Bruins by scoring one shootout goal. That really sucks.

    Bolts score with 0.1 second left in overtime to beat the Hawks. You just knew it was going to happen...

    That hit on Carlo was garbage, Wilson is the worst. Its like he's had a blood transfusion from Dale Hunter or something....

    The inability of the league (refs and office) to dissuade Wilson from the OTT fringes of his game will only result in opposing coaches using a bench slot for a low skill / high PIM enforcer for the playoffs.

    ...which would be useless with the instigator rule. One of the dumbest rules ever.

    While acknowledging the Instigator Rule - Wilson is the type of individual where an indignant opposing coach might discard the normal hesitancy

    Wilsonless Caps prevail. Caps lost a player in the playoffs last year to a predatory hit and he only got a two minute minor.

    Those games need to be wins, so glad Isles got it done. Rougher road ahead.

    ...or the Bruins. Somehow they’ve got their number this year.

    He’s a PoS. Seen this too many times from him. Should have been more games.

    Isles are solid...boring as hell, but solid

    And speaking of pieces of shit, what was up with Marchand jumping that Wahlstrom kid along the boards?

    I guess Wahlstrom looked like a tootsie roll pop.

    And what was with Wahlstrom getting any penalty at all! If there's a penalty for missing a check - sure... but otherwise...

    And where was the instigator penalty?

    NHL, Disney/ABC/ESPN reach 7 year deal bringing hockey back. Includes 4 of the next 7 Stanley Cup finals after this year.
